2See CMC 16.05.090(13), Appeals, for shoreline decisions and permits. Any Type 1 decision made by the Shoreline Administrator may be appealed to the Hearing Examiner. When applications for shoreline permits are combined with other permits requiring Type 3 or 4 land use decisions, the Examiner, not the Director, makes the decision. All shoreline permits, including shoreline substantial development permits, shoreline variances and conditional uses, and the upholding of a letter of exemption are appealable to the State Shorelines Hearings Board and not to the Hearing Examiner.

3Appeal to Examiner is limited to the SEPA threshold determination for a project permit. The decision on the Type 1 permit itself is appealable to Superior Court.

4Final subdivisions are submitted to the Department for review and are approved by City Manager or by his or her designee.
